In fact it was very much otherwise. On the menu was some most excellent gingerbread, but Lafe Ribble seemingly did not relish the portion served to him. It had been "doctored." Thei-e i was no water in the water glasses at each plate, but on each table was a i large jug of fluid bearing a "suspicious" color some of it, from appearances, having a tendency to recall th ? ."old days" before the 18th amendment went into effect. Some of the bolder ones tried the stuff, and got away with it all richt, while others, more timid, ate a thirsty meal. Wiiilo the dinner was in vTogicss, Dr. L. D. Iloiliday, president of the club, rose and explained that as time was short, and he had a most important matter to present, he would talk while the others ate. He then told how the club was earnestly interested in all things that meant for the upbuilding of the town and the betterment of local conditions in every way. While the club's 'primary obiect was not to locate fac- in every way, iliiii anuum x auiuuu succ m securm the locatin ot this industry it would be the biggest thing in the history of the town. iiiwr,ci, i. i t accomplish this would take money, real money, lots of it, and it would have to be pledged immediately. To get things started Dr. Holliday proposed that the subscription paper be started then and there, and that every one in the room who would be willing to head the list with a subscription of $500 stand up. At that instant the lights went out, there was a flash three of them and when the lights again came on Tony Payne, Rene Jones, and Hort Ribble were found to "be standing by their chairs, and wondering what had "hit em." Their chairs had been charged with electricity. Tony said he'd have "stood up for a $1,000" as quickly as he had for the "$500." In one part of the room was the "bachelors' table." At this all unmarried Kiwanians and giuests were seated. Each was required to give his reason for living in bachelorhood. A committee was named to judge. Edgar L. iMbrphet gave the best reason, and was awarded the prize, a button hole kupie. Paul Stewart offered the "bumest" reason, and the committee explained that it was the aim of the club to offer help to those really in need, and as Stewart was one such, the club would help him, and furnish him a bride. At this Mary Bevington, at the piano, struck up a wedding march, as from " one of the anterooms appeared the bride, (Ted Parker) in her bridal robes. The "Rev." Hort Ribble advanced, and commanding the abashed Mr. Stewart and the "blushing" bride to join hands, proceeded to pronuonce a wedding i ceremony that tenaea to ma Ke tne (Continued on Pae Four) cuir.tet should bo coing full force in v:hkh so important a rrt in meet-nrothor week and a consistent string 'inrs rf th?s k?nd is already an inspira A . , . ur i o j tones or other industries, the club did Gretchen Albertson, Muriel Cox, Ad- . - .. .
